The intervention was primarily based on the comprehensive reinterpretation of the inner layout , with a recovery of volumes and spaces lost in favor of the advancement of the environments: the pre-present double entrance and the kitchen have been aggregated to the existing salon to develop a big openspace, exactly where the various places are recognized by the arrangement of the furniture .
The living area, which is found around the fireplace in which you can relax, chat or observe Tv, the spacious kitchen with island (recognized customized produced), which gave a robust impression convivial back to this location and finally an hidden homeoffice, practical and discreet, hidden behind a double folding door.

The homeoffice disappears behind a folding door primarily based on styles by architects, covered with the ” best layer ” of the oak flooring utilized for housing.
The existing chimney has been covered with screw anchors shale and producing a new strategy for the hearth lava stone a side has been enriched by the addition of a bench created of solid wood, with the creation of a reading through corner to read through and chill out illuminated, by all-natural light.
All lighting in the apartment is developed to be invasive as much less as feasible, with no hiding an imprint purely technological and scenic.
